"They don't use him," Ginn Sr. said. "He has to find a home."
That may be easier said than done. Upon entering the open market last March, the younger Ginn made it clear that he wanted to make his mark as a wide receiver instead of merely as a return specialist. Although drawing interest from the Detroit Lions, Baltimore Ravens and Minnesota Vikings for his return skills, Ginn was forced to re-sign with the 49ers on a one-year contract.
After losing primary kickoff-return duties and catching just two passes in 2012, Ginn should expect a similarly soft market in the coming months.
